What is FCC?

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is in charge of the development, enforcement and implementation of regulations that Congress set forth in the Communications Act of 1934 and the Telecommunications Act of 1996.


The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates all products containing radio transmitters, including radio, telecom and satellite equipment in areas such as electromagnetic interference, radio frequency (RF) exposure and spectrum allocation. For manufacturers of these products to export a product into the United States, FCC certification must be achieved.

What Products Require an FCC Certificate?

  • electronic products
  • mobile phones
  • wireless local area networking equipment
  • Bluetooth devices
  • remote control transmitters
  • land mobile radio transmitters
  • wireless medical telemetry transmitters
  • cordless telephones
  • walkie-talkies
  • electronic products
  • Power adapters
  • telecommunication equipment
  • IT equipment
  • electromagnetic compatibility products
  • radio and telecommunications terminal equipment
  • equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres

Why is an FCC certification important?

Mobile communications equipment and other products capable of radio communication must be certified compliant by a Telecommunications Certification Body (TCB) appointed by the FCC before being placed on the market. Non-compliance may lead to costly delays, fines and forfeitures, as well as reputation-damaging product recalls.
